Today is Friday, November 8th, 2013

Harrowing last few weeks but once again... we shall survive.  A week ago Tues., during my annual wellness exam, my doctor found a 1.7 cm lump in my right breast.  I had already scheduled my mammogram for the following Mon. but my Dr. insisted that I should go immediately.  I had a digital mammogram and then a sonagram and then, a biopsy.... man oh man the pain was immense but the waiting over the weekend until Tues. afternoon was excruciating.  The answer:  benign PHEW!!!  The weird part:  a milk duct had basically blown apart.  The doctors were flummoxed.  How could that happen?

I think I've figured out the puzzle with the help of my wonderful masseuse, Jan.    Last evening as I lay down on the table;  I explained my black & blued breast and the ? of the hematoma.  Jan reminded me about my last fun day in Hawaii.  I enjoyed boogie boarding while in Kauai until the very last day.  I was tethered to the board and rode a spectacular wave only to realize way too late that it was only the first of a set of very turbulent waves.  I succeeded in coming up for air but only after those waves had beaten me to the ocean floor several times.  After realizing that I'd also done a face plant; I exited thankfully and quickly put ice on my swollen right eye before the black eye surfaced.  I do believe that's where my breast hematoma derived from.  Whaddayathink?

So, I think that's enough for me.  T, however, has been declared neutrapenic again.  So, while he languors, he'll be taking 2 neupogen shots a week for the next 2 weeks and we'll be hoping his white cells start climbing...  white light needed...

This shall be a fun weekend... showing property to great clients on Sat. and then, celebrating at the Leon Panetta Gala at Pebble Beach as a guest of Lila's and then, Sun. off to see the 49ers play the Panthers at the Stick.  Wow!!!

I'll check in next week hopefully, with some photos...
